2016: Quick Prep For Healthy Smiles

As you prepare to guide your child into another exciting year of growth and development, one of your goals includes promoting a healthy smile that stays that way. Like most parents, you likely have a long list of other very important concerns to ensure your child’s wellbeing in safe and sound. Fortunately, we are ready to help streamline your approach to safeguarding your child’s oral health. Focus on the absolute essential details of prevention and you can relax, knowing your child’s smile is headed in the right direction.

Start Fresh With Dental Hygiene Products

One of the issues that commonly cause stress and frustration is attempting to keep up with cycling products. If possible, consider starting fresh and purchasing fresh toothpaste, new toothbrushes, and new dental floss for every member of your family. Or, simply spend a few moments taking inventory of what is old – toss it out – and then get everyone on the same page. You will spend less time trying to figure out whose brush is one month old and whose is three months old and can focus on enjoying your oral health routine.

Plan Your Visits Early

Do you find that when you attempt to schedule a visit for your child, you remember at the last minute and cannot secure the time and date that you want? Perhaps you simply forget about six-month preventive care visits until eight months have passed. Whatever the case, consider scheduling appointments well in advance, so you can make the time you need without stress.

Make Preventive Treatments A Priority

In addition to home care, checkups, and cleanings, the best way to protect your child’s oral health is with preventive treatments like sealants and fluoride. Make learning about these a priority for 2016!
